Mug Apple Crumble

It’s raining apples!! I love the fall and the excess of apples it brings! Besides using it’s crunchy sweetness in salads, oatmeals and stews I love a good apple crumble. My mouth is literally watering thinking about the apple crumble my Mom used to make for us kids!!!!

I think a good apple crumble should have a couple of key characteristics. Sweet soft apples, crumbly oat topping and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Okay I’m seriously hungry now…


I love apple crumble so much that I don’t trust myself to make a whole pan! I would eat it all in a couple of hours…I wish I was kidding but I’m not! I love making an apple crumble in a mug because it uses less dishes and is perfect portion control!

**Pro tip, make sure your mug is microwave safe before making this recipe! :) Not speaking from personal experience or anything lol!

Give it a try and enjoy!!
